Say I am Administrator in a cmd.

Now I want to run a process as a non Administrator Account without entering the password of the lower user.

>echo %USERNAME%
>runas /user:localuser cmd
Password for localuser:   <-- SKIP THIS PASSWORD

I know that there is the option /savecred, but this forces me to enter the password once. I dont even want to enter the password a single time.
